Creative Reuse with The Fabric Workshop and Museum Family Programs!

On Friday, June 29th, teens used reclaimed materials from The Resource Exchange for The Fabric Workshop and Museum‘s Teen Program: Feeling Free! A patch making activity inspired by Ursula von Rydingsvard’s collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, PODERWAĆ, 2017, a monumental-sized leather motorcycle jacket. Photos from the workshop by Carlos Avendaño.

We’re thrilled that the art and craft supplies that we diverted from landfill are being reused by such a great arts and education organization. FWM will continue promoting creative reuse in their educational programs by supplying workshop participants with reclaimed materials from our store during their next workshop too! Is your family interested in making a jacket patch and receiving a guided tour of the current exhibition? Details for this Saturday’s workshop below:
